Sweetened Condensed Milk*

homemade-condensed-milk Oh this is great. There are wonderful desserts that require sweetened condensed milk, something that carries a very hefty carb count and thus it means that we have to miss out on a lot of those poke cakes and such.

Well, you don’t have to. You can make your own. And it’s not hard and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

So do try this, if you are missing some of your favorite desserts because they call for condensed sweet milk.


  • 1 cup heavy cream (do not use all cream, it will get to thick and clumpy!)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener or granulated erythritol or anything you prefer
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15 drops stevia extract


  1. In a medium heavy saucepan, combine cream, milk and erythritol over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 1 1/2 hours, stirring frequently, until mixture is reduce by half. (No matter how often you stir, thick bits of milk will form on the sides. Leave it there, and try not to disturb it when stirring, or you will get chunky bits in your condensed milk).
  3. Add butter and let melt, then briskly whisk in xanthan gum. Let mixture cool to room temperature and stir in vanilla and stevia extracts.

SERVES: 2 Cups

NOTES: This should keep well in the fridge for quite a good while I believe.
